    I'm flattered. If you'd had a cute girl in the photo, it'd be my top pick!

    Thanks to all for the votes, comments, and critiques. I rushed out on the last day, to shoot a train, but no train came. I then remembered Jade O's entry with a girl on a train track years ago, and gave it a shot. Thanks Jade!

    Well done. Photos taken on railroad tracks always make me uneasy for some reason. The person balancing on the rail makes this a fun image. In my TT

    Well done! Great to have a humorous point of focus at the end of the lead in. The lighting works well too. Kudos.

    I understand, that you liked that the line leads to the man, but the other line does not. The composition of the picture would be better, if you had taken the photo from a place between the lines, I think.

    I think it would have been better to remove the posed figure.

    Nice variation on the time-honored railroad-track LLs. But I wish the rail-walker were wearing a more strongly-colored shirt.

    Great idea and perfectly executed. I love the reflection of the trees in the track. Great depth of field. I assume (hope) that this is an infrequently used train track as this could be dangerous for the balancer as well as the photographer.

    Meets the challenge well and I love the reflections in the rail. In my favourites.

    This photo has impact.. hard not to notice the rail which then leads the eye to the walker/balancer .. in my top 5
